A 14-year-old girl was mugged by another female teen about 17 or 18 years old at the bus stop at Langford Parkway and Jacklin Road, on Friday, Sept. 8 at 3:30 p.m.

“The 17- or-18 year old girl got off the bus behind (the victim),” said Cpl. Scott Braes of West Shore RCMP.  “She pushed her down and (the victim) has some bruises and small lacerations.”

When the victim fell to the ground some money fell out of her pockets, the older teen gathered up the money and pulled a knife and threatened the girl. “She said don’t call the police or certain things would happen,” Braes said.

“This was in broad daylight and in a very public place.”

RCMP are seeking any information or witnesses to come forward and call the West Shore RCMP detachment at 250-474-2264.
